SXSW: By the Numbers

CNN has launched some video content on Vimeo, that other video site that looks nicer than YouTube. Although CNN only has two videos on their Vimeo page so far, they're quite nice -- well-shot, well-produced, short, and evocative. The first is a nicely put-together look at SXSW (South By Southwest), embedding statistics into the video. My favorite: 1,307 licensed food trucks. Check it out:

SXSW: By the numbers from CNN on Vimeo.

I've never been to SXSW, nor have I been to Austin. Is this really what it's like? It looks a little like Burning Man meets Lollapalooza.

(CNN's second video is Mystery meal: A CNN secret supper. Spoiler alert: the secret is bacon.
